Swim Team Basics

Our trained coaches work to improve swimmers' skill level, endurance and to promote a healthy lifestyle. Our program embraces the YMCA core values and promotes progression at an individual level.

The YMCA Swim Team offers up to three practice times a week for beginning swimmers and more for advanced groups during the Fall season.  Swimmers are encouraged to attend at least two practices a week.

Swim meets are scheduled against other teams in the Minnesota State League, typically at other Y locations in the Northland Area such as Duluth, Superior, Grand Marais, Brainerd, and Grand Rapids. 

There are also several volunteer opportunities to help support the YMCA Swim Team.
